    David Leventhal of Dance for PD

    The Institute for Human Centered Design invites you to attend a Lunch & Learn Lecture with David Leventhal of Dance for PD (Parkinson's Disease).  David, a founding teacher and Program Director of Dance for PD, will discuss the internationally-acclaimed program's background and methods, providing insight into a model for how the arts can positively impact the lives of people living with a chronic neurological condition.  Highlighting aspects of the program's design that have made it widely accepted, David will discuss ways in which dance training and practice exemplify the transformative benefits of artistic engagement.  Dance for PD, developed and sustained through a 13-year collaboration between Mark Morris Dance Group and Brooklyn Parkinson Group, empowers people with Parkinson's to explore movement in ways that are refreshing, enjoyable, stimulating, and creative.  The program fosters a network of affiliated classes in 34 states and 10 countries around the world.
